    Estima Lock

    The past year I been working heavily on my Heel Hook as they are legal in most Advanced No-Gi in the States. However, in Europe the Heel Hook tend to be banned even in Advanced No-Gi. So this lately I been think of refocusing on the toe hold using the RNC grip or what people refer to as the Estima Lock. Any one has success or failure with this style of toe hold. It really seems like a devastating counter to the DLR/RDLR game.

    I played around with this a little in practice the other night, after seeing this video. Although the position of the locking arm is much better than in traditional BJJ compression locks, I still feel like this is mostly an extension of that original compression lock that doesn't work past white belt.

    I am positive I'm missing something, but I have yet to find what that is. Insight?

    The toes are against your chest/stomach, provides that leverage Helio invented.

    Considering the Estima Brothers are hitting this at the Black Belt level and at ADCC I would disagree.

    It is not a compression lock, it's a Toe Hold where the RNC grip is used to secure the foot against the body and the body is used to bring the toes to their butt like a traditional Toe Hold.

    Caveat: this move is new to me.

    I was having trouble visualizing how this would be executed at all, but I see that the opponent's shin doesn't have to be pushed away from your body, you just flatten the whole leg and foot against yourself. That limits the range in which you could torque the ankle, right? After flattening it out there is nowhere to go. Does the submission then come from compression pain or is flattening out the foot enough to injure most people?

    Its a Toe Hold. The toes are locked against the body with the RNC grip and Body turns to make the angle of bringing the toes towards the opponents butt as per a regular toe hold.

    It's not really an agree/disagree thing. I just said I didn't understand it and asked for insight. On first glance, the video didn't seem clear on where the toes were, hence my request for insight.

    Thanks for the clarification, DKJr.

    Right, of course. And I was saying that at first glance, it looked like a compression lock with a better grip.

    Now that you guys have clarified, I noticed upon re-watching the video that the toes are trapped against the body, mimicking the operative action of a toehold. Pretty cool.
